The past has ceased to follow

I've run out of pictures. Found this old one from when Raquel and I went camping for two weeks - Arches National Park, Canyonlands, Zion, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon... there might have been more, but those are the highlights. She said that she was fine with tent camping. She had been to a few electronic music festivals in the desert, so she was a real outdoors type. This turned out to be quite untrue and she has never wanted to tent camp again, even though she has a few times, with an air mattress. She prefers hotels. Mates for life will often express differences in their tastes, for life. 

The boy and I will set up a tent and sleep in the backyard tonight. It will get up to 97 degrees here in the upcoming week. We may try to drive down to Santa Barbara in early June. Not sure yet. There are complexities to traveling now. Hotels are not open. Families travel as caravan of sorts, and their needs are not the result of having additional people, they are multiplied by that same fact. I'll bring my tent, just in case. 

Okay. there is nothing new under the sun, except this Covid-19.
